Doc - Your lyrics have a warmth, richness, and appreciation for the human condition that reflect on your colorful experiences and deep soul. Don't ever stop writing. While many have performed your songs, no one feels your songs like you do. Keep up your phenomenal work.

I got your latest CD from a Scandinavian promoter and I really enjoy your songs, in fact I'm playing some of them in my radio show of American roots based music here.
Compliments for your music, keep on doing that!
All the best from Italy,

Yeah....I've been telling this guy for about 15 years that he is a freakin' songwriter extraodinaire, and that there are multitudes of people who would feel the same, AND love HIS voice, given the opportunity. Did he believe ME??? NOOOOOO....
So yeah, all you bandwagon riders, fair weather friends, and late-comers....I was here first (or maybe 2nd , right behind Helen!)
Ha-ha, post this one, Doc!

“All Across The Southern District” is such a touching, joyful already melancholic, marvelous, colorful detailed painting in beautiful notes and precious words on a very stirring sticky melody; a warm aquarelle of the country ánd its residents. It is one BIG Magnificat ánd “Thank You”.
This pearl has everything to become Georgia’s National Hymn #1, an obligatory song for all schools and public events.
Standing Ovation, Doc!

Thank you for you CD. I really appreciate your songs and your universe.
I hope that you enjoyed Paris and James Taylor's concert. I'm waiting for your new song : April in Paris.

I received a copy of Seconds Chances from my brother, Rear Admiral Andy Brown...I love it. have purchased copies for my children.
my oldest daughter lives in Athens, Ga and is a photographer and teacher.
keep doing what you do. my sense of lawyers is heightened after musing through your songs.

Doc, I saw your name at the We Are Listening website. We are neighbors here in GA. I reside in Augusta, GA. I have been sinigng and writing music for 20+ years and recently recorded my 1st CD. Your music is heart-felt. I hope you don't mind I added a link to your site from my site www.outreachforwomen.org I look forward to hearing from you soon. Lori Greenhill

A friend of mine in Atlanta recently turned me onto your music. Wow! What a great collection of songs, and each one is really a pleasure to soak in. The lyrics, music and vocals are all great and I have enjoyed getting the music on I-tunes and have been listening to it over the last few days.
Nice job, Doc!
November 6, 2007
A colleague directed me to your website because he was pretty sure I would enjoy what you're doing. He was right. I'm looking forward to digging deeper. In the meantime, thanks for giving a recovering attorney and wannabe songwriter (dozens of verse and chorus fragments scralled in legal pads) a little more motivation to keep trying.
November 2, 2007
As a fan of lots of different kinds of music, I have soaked up the songs on Second Chances and am the better for having you on my i-Pod, right above Dolly Parton! You are making lawyers seem like more fun and sound even better (although the Auburn connection still holds you back a bit...). Thanks for standing out from the crowd.
July 11, 2007
Bonus! My Buddy Bob gave me his brothers cd! The Gift was a very nice gesture. Double Bonus: The cd is FANTATIC!, easy listening at work, good to turn up loud on the drive home. I still haven't decided on a favorite song yet, but Who Took Our Eyes Away? is close! Thank you Bob & Thank You Doc! Keep strummin'!
June 23, 2007
I just ordered three of my brothers cds, from cd baby and not to my surprise they were out of stock, wow. I have to wait for the artist, to restock. Le's go Doc, I am saturating the south Florida market for you, ha ha. Good stuff, still love, "Homemade Song". Bobby
June 20, 2007
Hey Doc, I'm the guy from the Ritz Lake Oconee who took a keen interest in your guitars. My custom should be done within the next month or so... not an Olson but we all can dream :) Anyway, I love your stuff and thanks for introducing the Ritz community to Eugene Ruffolo. I absolutely love "The Hardest Easy" and his voice is the perfect vehicle for your beautiful songs on "Songs In Other Voices". Hope to see you next year.
April 18, 2007
I stopped by from getting your link from a message board I frequent, thanks to Ken below!! Great sounds, I'll be downloading once I get home.
April 15, 2007
I just checked out your website (nice website too) and I'm downloading some of your songs from i-tunes as we speak. I love your music!
The lyrics, the vocals the chord changes...it's all just a pleasure to listen to. I'm gonna spread the word about you to everyone I know. These songs of yours are very moving and powerful. It's beautiful stuff! Very inspirational!
I'm a songwriter from the Boston area. I don't know if you tour, but if you're ever in this area, I'd love to go to one of your shows.
March 19, 2007
You were kind enough to send me both of your CD's and they are brilliant. I cannot stop listening to the latest one. I love A Second Chance - I just hit the replay button over and over again. I am sure I will enjoy the rest of the CD if I can ever get enough of that first song. I'll let you know.

I really have enjoyed your music here, Doc. I have especially liked "Everything Gold". I am a fan of Robert Frost and his poem, "Nothing Gold can Stay." It is one of my favorites. I assume your song is a different side of that story. Great job! I'm sure it would be a song James would love to sing. Thanks!
March 10, 2007
Happy birthday....old man...:-)

Many tks for yr cd ! I've played it over and over again. Great songwriting. Marvelous bunch of performers and producers. "never been the same as James" is one of the lines in yr "Homemade Song", well in my view you're very close to James.
Happy, healthy 2007 to you and your family !

Nice web site Doc, hope to see you in Atlanta

I can't wait for the new CD. The real face you have put on the practice of law and the writing of songs -- it's a real inspiration.
August 10, 2006
Doc, I was the younger reporter (with Nonna) that did depos for you in California on the Frank Maggio case. I'm going to buy a CD for myself and the now retired Nonna...she'll get a kick out of it. Say hello to Bill Clinebell for me.

I was just introduced to the sight by Bob (Tu Hermano) We are here at my place watching the Super Bowl. He is sweating tostitos because the Seahawks are losing and it's going to cost him Fifty Bucks. By the way... nice photos.
December 24, 2005
I have only listened to a bit and loved it all. I'm honored to have met your brother Bob and to learn more about you from this web site. I am sure many of my friends and relatives will be glad to learn and listen!

What can I say, you set an example young people could only hope to follow. I have enjoyed and considered it my honor to grow up across the street from you and your wonderful family(some of the time that is). Hope all is well, and I hope to see you soon. Thanks for everything you've ever done for me.

PS: Thanks for always letting me stay in your basement when I'm evicted from my house.

Doc -- Last week, having been tipped off by a mutual musical friend, I found your new website, and delighted in listening to your mellow tones and thoughtful lyrics. Quite coincidentally (or not), this week, James Taylor performed, live, just outside our offices in Rockefeller Plaza. So I was able to make direct comparisons on many levels. JT, make way for DS!
June 14, 2005
A great website to follow-up a great album! Thank you for sharing your talents, insights, and joys, and for providing conclusive evidence that there may well be more to a lawyer than one might expect. Well done, as always. Best wishes from your loyal fans in Westchester County.
May 24, 2005
What's up Doc! Okay, I appologize but I couldn't resist. lol Man your talents are simply remakable! We writers of "Homemade Songs" are a dying breed, but with whole lot of life left in us still through our musical contributions. Your contributions are disproportionately BIG! Thank you for your songs...
May 19, 2005
Thanks for the link! We hope to see you performing in Nashville sometime soon. Take care, K
Gladys S. Dorian, your favorite s-i-l

Doc, What a joy to see your handsome face and listen to your beautiful music. Your precious Mother - in -law in Heaven is listening to your songs with all the Angels. What JOY...............

When I saw your amazing website, I wanted to sign your guest book, but was at a loss for words... But "Just Then", I realized that I am "The Lucky One"... your "Number One Fan"(along with thousands of others, no doubt.) I used to think you were just "One Heckuva Little Girl" but now realize that there's "Nothing Quite Like You"... A true poet whose lyrics and tunes offer a "Hint of Heaven" by taking those days when nothing's going right, and making "Everything Gold." Thank God for the "Choices and Chances" you have taken with music, for without your gift the world would be a "Quiet Place." So, "If You Must Leave Me Now" to go and work on that "Song in Progress"... Then go... but I am left wondering when you'll "Come To My House" to sing us some of your "Homemade Songs" in person... So on behalf of everyone living in the east, the west, the north... and actually "All Across The Southern District", I'd like to say thank you for answering the call of the Great Creator by daring to be your own great creator!

p.s. Nothing Quite Like You makes me think of a very special little six year old boy and how I miss him so... (funny how you must have thought you were writing a romantic song?)
April 11, 2005
Helen was just here and I was asking about your music. What a treat to see your website. Congratulations on the recognition. I love this picture from the camp.

Archibald MacLeish once said "The business of the law is to make sense of the confusion of what we call human life—to reduce it to order but at the same time to give it possibility, scope, even dignity." I believe that this is true of music as well, and in the same way that Mr. MacLeish combined his legal vocation with his avocation for poetry, you have done so with your songwriting. Kudos to you for your Unisong Contest award and a very fine website. Keep it up!
April 8, 2005
Excellent website and excellent music. Congrats on the recent award. To misquote Denzel Washington and Jamie Kennedy from from "Training Day" and "Malibu's Most Wanted" respectively, I proclaim: "James Taylor ain't got nothin' on you!"
April 8, 2005
To paraphrase Judge Bell: The songwriters say he is a great lawyer and the lawyers say he is a great songwriter. Happy to be the third (and hopefully not the last) visitor to your web site.
April 7, 2005
I'm utterly speechless Doc, you've done it man. A true accomplishment for songwriters everywhere. I still can't believe that even in the days of my youth the Schneider music movement was only taking baby-steps. I am constantly impressed, and occasionally inspired, by your tactful chord and word choice in your songs. Three cheers for you Doc, the 'starving-for-exposure-musician' that made it out of seclusion and quite apparently, hunger. In closing, "if the spirit moves ya, let it groove ya"-marvin gaye
April 7, 2005
I am the proud to be your baby sister. I have been a fan long before the awards. I have enjoyed listening to you play and sing for many years going back so far as "Bye Bye Holy Trinity High". Your music is touching and makes me drift into memories, some sad, some sweet. But I thank you for all of them. I love your music , I love your spirit, I love you.
